A textbook for a second course in psychoacoustics, the study of how a physical sound as described mathematically is transformed into the perception of sound as registered by a listener. Assumes a comfort with the concepts and practice of differential and integral calculus, but no prior study of differential equations, Fourier transforms, or linear algebra. Organized basically as an introductory engineering text on signals, but draws the examples and exercises from research on sound perception that hearing scientists would be familiar with and benefit from.
